Weather

Weather conditions could delay air charter departures. Blachford Lake Lodge will do its utmost to accommodate clients. However, weather conditions are beyond our control and therefore we cannot be responsible for additional costs incurred by guests.

Please be aware that the Aurora does not appear every night, even when the sky is clear, and it also cannot be seen through cloud. We cannot therefore guarantee Aurora sightings at any time, including on New Moon Aurora dates.

We have a traditional tent frame (plywood floor and sides with canvas/ tarp top) set up on Grace Lake - adjoining Blachford. Wood stove provides heat and gas lamps for light. Outdoor toilet. Basin water for washing. Guide would sleep in adjoining tent frame. This is our main base for winter overnights and for those seeking another level of winter adventure. One or a combination of our snowmobile routes can be combined to include the Grace Lake tent frame overnight option for one or more nights, returning later to the comforts of the lodge at Blachford.
